Some people might say that dolls are toys for kids and nothing more. But incredible artists can change the minds of the harshest critics.
Noel Cruz is one of those people. The Filipino artist, currently working in the USA, repaints regular dolls making them into real one-of-a-kind pieces of art.
He has transformed many simple dolls giving them realistic faces of actors and characters. Noel's repaints are done with intricate detail to the point of being naturally lifelike in essence. Repainted dolls are sold as collectors' items and are wildly popular.
Take a look at some of the "before-after" images and be amazed by the talent of Noel Cruz.
